Italian Junior Champion

Border Union, June 2015
Loved this boy as soon as he entered the ring and I know he will appeal to both breed judges and the all rounder as this boy is sound. He cannot stand wrong. His head is of the correct length and depth and a dark eye with large teeth. Super body, firm in hocks & well bent in hindquarters. Driving from front and back. Excellent showboy and one to watch. BD & BOB
(Judge: Sherrill Goodwin)

Tight front, good depth to chest and strong topline rising over a strong loin, finishing with well muscled rearquarters. Moves with ease and showing much confidence. Delighted to award him BOB
